Book Blogger New Year Challenge 2014: Day 6

Okay, What was my BEST BOOK of 2013 you ask? Well this is a hard one for me to pick just one. I read some AMAZING books this past year. So for this one I am going to give you my top two. 

For the first one:

Title:  Undaunted Love 
Category: Christian/Historical/Fiction
Pub. Date: 09/13/2012
Publisher: Self Pub.
Format: Kindle
Pages: 375
ISBN#: B009AB33R2
Hugh Byrd, the cold, ambitious patriarch of Byrd's Creek, is used to getting what he wants. And what he wants is the Colton's prime land, and the destruction of the Colton family. What he doesn't count on is his own daughter falling in love with Rafe Colton.
Ripped apart by the Civil War, the young couple must find a way to keep their secret love alive. The end of the War should mean a joyous reconciliation, but when Rafe is accused of a terrible crime, he runs away, leaving Livvie behind once again. Will this finally break their bond, or will their love survive?
A sweeping romance set in the South, Undaunted Love is a tale of faith, hope, patience and the redemption of God's love.
Then for the second one:
Title: Bully in the Mirror
Shanaya Fastje 
Pub. Date:
Changing Lives Press/Never Sink Book

Bullying is everywhere....and so is media coverage of bullying. In recent months, Ladies Home Journal, The Week, Redbook, and New York Times have all run articles on bullying. Episodes of Hannah Montana and Glee have dealt with bullying, and MTC launched a reality TV show called Bully Beatdown in 2009. Even the US Government is concerned; the Department of Health and Human Services has an interactive website dedicated to cyber-bullying. Bully in the Mirror can be a powerful part of the solution. The book blends facts about the negative effects of bullying with the author's views. Since Shanaya is a 13 year old girl who has been bullied, her experiences and those of her friends create an immediate connection with today's kids. Each chapter provides important facts along with tips and exercises Shanaya created. Readers learn how bullies operate and how to stop them in their tracks. 

So there you have it. What was your favorite read for 2013?
